What do you think? Of this work in ink? #4

Public perception of tattoos and associations with organized crime has drastically changed in Singapore, just like in other places. In my interactions with others, I find people strongly polarized one way or another; nobody is quite ambivalent on this item.

So...my position is that I am unconcerned about tattoos, except that a lot of them seem to be poorly executed, Ayush.

Having said that, I am not about to get one on my skin.
Ayush Basu: There are not regulations or criteria for anyone to become a tattoo artist or not that I am aware of.
Not my style
Ayush Basu: Perfectly understandable, Chantal.
I'm with Ray and Chantal here Ayush. I have lots of friends who have many styles from football teams to family members. I'm interested but have never thought of having one.
Ayush Basu: I understand perfectly Scotia. I think urban tattoos are like that (as you mentioned football teams and such) and completely different from tattoos of various tribes.

It always seems risky to me to have a girl's name tatooed, but "Familia" seems a safe option
Ayush Basu: Haha, that is a good observation Lisl. Thank you for the comment.

I would not but many do..
Ayush Basu: Yes, it would seem so Chris.
I am not a fan of tattoos and I hate them on women!
Ayush Basu: Oh, then you should give my blog a miss the coming two days then Bill grin
I enjoy seeing them Ayush but I wouldn't do any on me!
Ayush Basu: I quite understand Richard. smile
I'm with Ray too, there are many interesting artists working with the body in many ways including tattoo. In this case, the connotation "familia", as in Spanish, also means "gang" or "group of interests", so whateverÂ…cows are also marked by their ownersÂ…and they seem not to care and/or proudly like it.
Ayush Basu: Good point Juan Carlos. Thank you.
Wow!
But hunk. Great picture!
Lucia ♥ ♥ ♥
Ayush Basu: Thank you for visiting and commenting Lucia
I guess that's safer than the name of his last but one girl friend smile
Ayush Basu: Haha true that, Tom
At least it's a positive message.
Ayush Basu: Yes, not a McDonald's receipt grin

As you know I am not a fan of them. I do however like some of the artwork. I don't associate them with crime, I know many lovely people who sport tattoos.
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, perceptions are changing rapidly
Indeed family is the most important thing smile

Not for me, I'm afraid although I agree with the expression. I could do with one saying "This way up" on some days smile
